Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolors swatches and review

Today I have some swatches for you from the Nicole by OPI Kardashian Kolors collection for Holiday 2011. I haven't seen all that many episodes of the Kardashians but I was pretty excited for this collection because it contains glitters!!! GLITTER!! Plus I just love holiday collections. There are 14 polishes in the collection and I have swatches of four for you - Kendall on the Katwalk, Kim-pletely in Love, Disco Dolls and All Kendall-ed Up today. All swatches are without topcoat.


What they say:

"Nicole by OPI joins the Kardashian family in announcing the launch of the Kardashian Kolor range; 14 effervescent shades inspired by each six members of this TV family.

Kim, Kourtney, Khloe, Kylie, Kendall and Kris, each recognised for their fashion forward style, have chosen their favourite colour shade which best reflect their personalities. If these girls are not featuring in the social pages, twittering or staring their reality TV show, they are getting their nails done.

Kardashian Kolor offers a diverse collection of shades, ranging from high-shine and sparkly hues; from frosty white to dark chocolate brown, from a blue-green shimmer to a lipstick red, to neutral taupe to a pinkish coral. The names alone are enough to make your spell-check spontaneously combust."



Kendall on the Katwalk is a stunning blue, purple and green glitter. I adore blue glitters and this one is so unique as it has blue and purple in it too. It is just so gorgeous I didn't want to take it off! Definitely my favourite. It's on the sheer side and 3 coats was needed for opacity which is pictured.


Close up:




Kim-pletely in Love is a sheer light pink with subtle blue microglitter through it. It is SOOOOOO pretty! It looks like a boring pink but the microglitter makes it special. It would be a perfect wedding colour! Unfortunately my camera wouldn't pick up the microglitter properly. I found application a little difficult as the formula is a little on the thin side - I experienced some cuticle flooding and I also had some major dragging but a few coats did the trick. 3 coats is pictured.


Close up:




Disco Dolls is a gold glitter with silver, purple and bronze hex glitter in a bronzey gold base. It's a very unique glitter and is very holiday inspired which I love. It's super opaque and 1 thick coat would be enough however I used 2 coats which is pictured.


Close up:




All Kendall-ed Up is a super bright pink creme. It's slightly darker in real life than my pics but you get the picture. It's not the most unique colour but it's bright and fun and perfect for summer. I'm currently wearing it as my pedi colour with some Nicole by OPI Love Your Life glitter hearts ;) I experienced some dragging so I needed 3 coats which is pictured. It dries super glossy!


Close up:




Overall: I really enjoyed the polishes! Kendall on the Katwalk and Disco Dolls are obviously my favourites as I can't go past glitter! I love that they're unique glitter colours and the formula is excellent and dried very smooth.

I had some dragging issues with Kim-pletely in Love and All Kendall-ed Up but all in all they applied reasonably. I find with sheer pinks and certain cremes there is always some degree of dragging sadly. Dry time for the lacquers was good and the brush was easy to use. I REALLY dislike the "Perfect Stroke" brush they had for some polishes - it nearly gave me a stroke using it!!

I'm not sure how holiday some colours are for example All Kendall-ed Up but the pretty glitters make the collection. I would have loved an entire collection of glitters!

Details: Kardashian Kolor collection will be available soon at selected pharmacies and Terry White Chemists and The Nail File Shop for $14.95. For stockists contact 1800 358 999 or visit www.nicolebyopi.com.

Do you like holiday collections as much as I do? Will you be purchasing any of these colours? Thanks for looking as always!

  3. I'll be stocking these polishes when they eventually land in my hands, but OPI told me earlier in the week there was a small delay and stockists won't have them for another week or two! Booo...because I'm massively excited to get into them, especially Kendall on the Katwalk.

  7. Kim-pletely in Love is very beautiful! I love the color, but I hate thin polishes... And having to apply THREE coats is too much hassle.
